What is the average age Puberty begins?

Average age Puberty begins:

Girls will normally start at 10 or 11-years-old but can start earlier or later.

Boys will normally start at 12 or 13-years-old but can start earlier or later.

Most children will begin Puberty to this scale, but it would not be abnormal to be a little earlier or later beginning.

Precocious (Early)Puberty:

It should be noted that in a very few cases Puberty can begin before 8-years-old for a girl and 10-years-old for a boy. If there are signs that puberty has begun earlier than these then you should consult a doctor for a check-up and possible blood test to make sure all is well.

Delayed Puberty:

If Puberty has not begun by 3 years after the above average scale then you should consult a doctor for a check-up and possible blood test. They will then be able to tell you if you need hormone replacement treatment to hurry it along.

Puberty usually runs for around 4 years for girls and 6 years for boys but it varies.

First signs of puberty:

Girls, will first notice their breast buds, they may feel firm and be a little sore. They will begin to grow pubic hair, and they will get their menarche (first period). Their hips will begin to broaden.

Boys, a growth spurt, testes enlarging, pubic hair.

Both will begin to be interested in sexual behaviours.
Change of voice is the earliest indication of puberty.
